Nissan 370z > BMW 135i

Well, I love the new 135i. I drove my boys and I loved how it drove, but according to this, the 370z is better. They are both great cars nonetheless!

4Seater > 2Seater at least thats how i look at it havin a 2 seater as a daily is pointless before i got my e46 it was between that or a 350Z... so what i did was barrow a friends for a week... lets just say im glad i went with my bimmer i like the looks and styling of the 370 but i rather have a car that i can put stuff in and dont have to worry about dealing with never taking my car out when i go out with friends

I love my bmws and ive have drove both the 135i and 370z(base model) and i can tell you the 135 might be better daily driver because of back seats and all... but if that didnt matter, 370 performed much better and felt more connected with the road. +i liked the styling compared to the 350z. I never really was a fan of the 1, but i like the looks of the 335.

If a 370z beats a 135i in the forest, does anyone care?

Agreed! I'd never consider a car that seats only two, and I'd never buy another Nissan/Infiniti.

My Ride: Your girlfriend :)
I think the 370Z looks better, sounds better and comes with more stuff. The 1 series looks too bubble like and girlie. I wish the 135 was wider and lower, twin exhaust like the 335 or quad exhaust. Something also has to be done about the headlights, just looks like a ugly bubbly little car.

I would own one of these if they were sold in the US as hatchbacks. I don't like the coupe much, I'm neutral on the convertible, but I think the hatch version looks nice.

from a performance standpoint, bone stock, the 370z has more to offer.
